AFFCAD plans to build a new school in Bwaise, the poorest slum in Kampala. Due to changing rent, landlord neglect and instability, the only primary school that offers free school places has been forced to shut down. AFFCAD want to rebuild the school, providing an excellent standard of education accessible to all children in the community.
In Bwaise more than 90,000 people live in extreme poverty with little or no access to education, water, sanitation or shelter. 50% of residents of Bwaise are illiterate and have had no chance to learn. Schooling that exists in the community is often expensive and comes with unforeseen costs. AFFCAD want to tackle this problem head on and create a school that can provide education and opportunity for as many children as possible.
The school will provide a quality education for the poorest children within the community, opening doors and providing opportunities for the children's future. Rebuilding the school, on a plot of land that is owned by AFFCAD, will provide consistency and stability for the community. The school will hold 500 places with classes from nursery to P7. It will be open to children from all backgrounds and will be accessible for the disabled children in the slum.
By supporting this project you will be able to contribute towards the education of some of the poorest children in Uganda. This will ensure these kids are properly nurtured in a safe environment and will teach them skills that they will need to prosper in secondary school and adulthood.
